Microsoft and Funai in Patent Cross-Licensing Agreement

The agreement between Microsft and Funai Electric Co. Ltd., the manufacturer of LCD TVs sold in the U.S. under brands such as Sylvania, Magnavox, Philips and Emerson covers consumer audio - video products.

“Consumers want TVs to offer experiences that were once available primarily on personal computers. A patent license like this one allows two industry leaders to deliver the type of cutting-edge innovations that today’s consumers demand,” said David Kaefer, general manager of Intellectual Property (IP) Licensing at Microsoft.

Agreement furthers collaboration on new consumer electronics products.
